What will I learn?

The Radiography Associate in Science (A.S.) degree at Valencia College is a two-year program that prepares you to go directly into a specialized career as a radiographer.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, imagine the value of clear images generated by high-tech medical equipment for a person in need of medical care. And imagine the value that someone trained in the use of such equipment brings to a medical team. The radiographer is an integral member of the medical team. Radiographers operate high-tech imaging equipment and perform diagnostic imaging examinations such as X-ray’s, CAT scans, MRI’s and mammograms, that help doctors accurately diagnose and treat their patients for injury and disease. Valencia’s A.S. degree in Radiography prepares students to become highly skilled professionals in the safe and effective use of radiation to treat patients.

Learn How To

  • Apply knowledge of human anatomy to position the patient’s body so that the correct areas can be radiographed
  • Produce quality radiographs (X-rays) for use in diagnosing and treating medical problems
  • Protect patients and self from radiation
  • Provide respectful care to patients

Job Outlook

Radiographers are employed primarily in hospitals. Career opportunities are also available in radiological/imaging centers, urgent care clinics, private physicians’ offices, and public health service facilities. Employment within the radiologic profession is projected to grow faster than the average for all occupations. As the population grows older, there will be an increase in medical conditions, such as breaks and fractures caused by osteoporosis, which usually requires imaging to diagnose them.
